The Osthoff Resort offers the finest lakeshore setting in southeastern Wisconsin with 500 ft. of sand beach on beautiful Elkhart Lake. Formed by retreating glaciers, Elkhart Lake has a natural sand bottom that keeps our water clear year-round. Our lakefront features picnic areas complete with watersports, grills, bonfire area, a playground, volleyball courts and a concession stand.

Wristbands are given to resort guests to enjoy The Osthoff Resort’s private lakefront/swimming area. The Lake Deck and Recreation Rentals are open to resort guests and the general public.
